As much as 60% of all clothes become waste within a year of their production, and 40% of all produced clothes are not even sold nor used. By reusing, redesigning and buying healthy materials that lasts, we contribute to circular fashion.
AT this event we have invited local entrepreneurs and designers working in the fashion business on sustainable premisses:
I Ull:produces gorgeous wool garments.
ReLi:clothing rental. This is circular economy in practical daily life.
You will also meet one of the participants, Turi Rudningen Galta, from the TV series, The sew championship, season 5. Redesign has become very popular in the last couple of year. Perhaps you will pick up some inspiration yourself?
This will be a social and informative evening for anyone interested in clothing. Whether you are curious about being an entrepreneur, learning more about reuse or simply just seeing what is going on in the region. Your bonus is meeting many nice people in addition to our great speakers.

Turi Rudningen Galta is an architect who has always loved and worked with yarn and fabrics. Natural materials, resource utilization, textiles with a history and zero waste is her main interests. After being a participant in «The Great Norwegian Sewing Bee (Symesterskapet)» this fall, she aims at making a difference related to climate change and areal neutrality – by turning her sewing hobby into a livelihood. She wants to inspire to less consumption with @noys0m
Today we live in a word of overconsumption and overproduction. We buy twice as much clothes as we did 30 years ago, but at the same price. This results in 85% of all textiles produced ending up in the landfill within a year. Lisa Ribesen and Rebecca Ribesen Sjølie believe one of the solutions to the problem is renting clothes, which is why they founded ReLi in 2020. Together they are promoting circular fashion and new ideas of how to "dress sustainable".
